Book cover
The brain is probably the most important and yet mysterious organ of the human. As a major home health reference on the brain, Dana Guide to Brain Health “emphasizes how the latest scientific findings are being translated into actual treatment of people in pain or puzzlement”. A group of prominent scientists and clinicians in United States in the field of neuroscience, neurology and psychiatry, was assembled to contribute to this excellent book. This high-quality illustrated resource contains useful information and advice on how to care for our brain from birth until adulthood.

“Neuromotor prostheses (NMPs) aim to replace or restore lost motor functions in paralysed humans by routeing movement-related signals from the brain, around damaged parts of the nervous system, to external effectors. To translate preclinical results from intact animals to a clinically useful NMP, movement signals must persist in cortex after spinal cord injury and be engaged by movement intent when sensory inputs and limb movement are long absent.”

“Non-stationarities are ubiquitous in EEG signals. They are especially apparent in the use of EEG-based brain-computer interfaces (BCIs): (a) in the differences between the initial calibration measurement and the online operation of a BCI, or (b) caused by changes in the subject’s brain processes during an experiment (e.g. due to fatigue, change of task involvement, etc).”
